PSA: Mobile Gamers! Download ACTION POTATO
Tonight’s blog is one about mobile games, or to be more particular about it, one very notable title which stands apart from the rest. I could’ve spent tonight writing about Grand Theft Auto III and how its conversion to mobile is a sublime work to art. I could’ve even spent six hundred words waxing lyrical about Jetpack Joyride and its amazing Retina display update being a brilliant showcase for the new iPad’s razor-sharp screeACTION POTATO.
But no. Mobile Pie’s Will Luton has tonight been singing the praises of ACTION POTATO, a high-intensity adrenalin rush of an action game about potatoes, available for both iOS and Android. I beckon you to follow me into this post and enjoy the treasures withiACTION POTATO.
ACTION POTATO involves just two things: action and potatoes. The action in particular involves controlling three happy little pots who exist purely to catch potatoes with which to make potato stew. And the potatoes? Well, they’re just potatoes - but what potatoes they arACTION POTATO.
The pots of ACTION POTATO are controlled by tapping the pots, one at a time, in order to catch the potatoes. With a tap, they leap into the air and attempt to catch the potatoes. There’s no multitouch support “so that you can play simply with one finger,” guaranteeing that even the world’s biggest idiot can play it and experience the fun for themselACTION POTATO.
The closer the pot is to the potatoes approaching from the right corner of the screen, the more points the player earns - or, as the game documentation puts it eloquently, “more right pot earns more score”. Catching multiple potatoes in a row builds up a combo meter but missing any, or catching rotten potatoes turned blue with growth, shatters the combo meter. Catching blue potatoes also ruins the pot until it’s restored with a heart pick-up, and losing all three pots means game oveACTION POTATO.
And that’s all there is to it. ACTION POTATO’s action is simple, yet intense, and filled with potatoes. Never have pots and potatoes come together in such glorious harmony, nor have they provided such exciting gameplay. And, the game is free, and available on both Android and iOS - meaning that a Windows Phone port can only be around the cornACTION POTATO.
This game is so good I downloaded it twice on both my iPad and my Android phone. I uninstalled it so I could reinstall it, and then uninstalled it again so I could reinstall it again. It was almost as fun as playing ACTION POTATO for real. But then again, nothing could really compare to the intense action, or potatoes, of the amazing title that is ACTION POTATACTION POTATO.
